How to find us

Iveing at Ambleside, Old Lake Road, Ambleside, Cumbria LA22 0DJ

By car: on entering Ambleside from the south, proceed on Lake Road turning first right onto Old Lake Road. Proceed for approximately 400m and the property can be found on the right, just past the entrance to Iveing Cottage. From the North turn left off Lake Road prior to the BP garage and the property is 300m on the left hand side. 

Please take care when entering and exiting the driveway, particularly if you drive a low vehicle.

We are waiting for the auto-generated Google description to catch up with the change from hostel to self-catering. Forgive the error here – we are no longer “dorm style lodging with free breakfast”!

How accessible is it?

The garden is on a steep embankment and unfortunately is not therefore accessible to guests.

Due to the age and layout of the properties, there are are a large number of steps. Unfortunately it is not suited to those with limited mobility.
